Held items/Berries disappearing when Bag is "full"

The Pokémon Bank FAQ mentions that held items/Berries will be sent to your Bag when the player is depositing Pokémon into Pokémon Bank, and that items will disappear if the Bag is "full". I thought that post-Generation 3 games had unlimited Bag space, so I'm wondering is this statement referring to when you have the maximum amount of a single item (like reaching the cap of 999 Rare Candies in the Rare Candy's particular item slot)?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is just referring to the 999 maximum. --SnorlaxMonster 02:49, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Incorrect categorization link.

Read: [Category:Pokémon that evolve through trading|Pokémon that] evolve via trading will not evolve if sent to Pokémon Bank.

(There are supposed to be two brackets "[[]]" in the sentence, but I'm not sure of what you type to make wikicode/markup appear as text rather than executing itself/how you nullify wikicode from executing...) I was trying to format the link to the category of "Pokémon that evolve through trading" so that it appears as an internal Bulbapedia link rather than an external link, but for some reason, the method in which I typed the sentence categorizes the Pokémon Bank article itself in that category rather than just "internally linking to that category within the sentence" (the latter being what I intended). It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help to format this sentence properly (and in the worst-case scenario, I'll just settle for the link appearing as an external link). Thanks in advance. Fenyx4 (talk) 19:05, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Fixed it. If you want to link to a category rather than add it, you put a colon at the beginning of the link. In this case, it is [[:Category:Pokémon that evolve through trading]]. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:15, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
One little colon? Are you kidding me? XD Wow...that could have saved me all that trial-and-error I was doing earlier trying to fix the problem.. But this feature is good to know; thank you very much for fixing it, and I'll keep your tip for future reference. :) Fenyx4 (talk) 00:00, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Comparison of Fees

Just for the heck of it (and if someone decided to add this into an actual section), here is a comparison of the fees relative to USD (as of December 15th, 2013):

  • JP¥500 = US$4.85
  • GB£4.99 = US$8.13
  • EU€4,49 = US$6.17
  • AU$6.50 = US$5.83
  • NZ$8.50 = US$7.03
  • KR₩5000 = US$4.75

I'm kinda surprised that the fees vary so much... -- Nick15 (talk) 23:00, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

I think this should be included in the article, at least in a "x-pays the least, x-pays the most" capacity. Not just because I'm outraged about the UK having to pay the most despite being in a state of economic decline or anything, I swear. Me, Hurray! (talk) 17:08, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, the EU and UK prices were mixed up, with £4.49 being $7.29 right now and €4.99 being $6.85. The UK price is still the highest, of course. - Blazios talk 17:38, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
